Hello!
Take her to get checked by a dermatologist. They handle skin AND SCALP issues!
I would advise stop hydrogen peroxide as that can be very irritating...
Ok to try wash once a day with HIBICLENS dilute solution( that is a pink antibacterial soap)...
Then wash hair 2nd time with Nizoral shampoo which is antifungal product...
This would help to cover these bases as she may have infected boils or could have a bad case of tinea capitis ( a fungal infection of the scalp)
The dermatologist can help make more certain diagnosis for her and direct treatment from there.
I hope that this helps. Let me know if you have further questions.I will be happy to get back with you. If my answers have been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback.Thank You and Best Regards!
